Video from Billed Bladet

Difficult to put into words how truly important Mary's continued (and very vocal) dedication to the LGBTI+ community is. But I think the above video is a pretty good example of how much her support is appreciated.

Crown Princess Mary has sent a message to mark today's Human Rights Day:

Quote:
Today is International Human Rights Day. It is a day to celebrate the adoption of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. In a world where human dignity is still violated, it is important to remind each other of respect for human rights.

In late October, I visited Burkina Faso, one of the poorest countries in the world. Burkina Faso is characterized by climate change, conflict and instability and about seven percent of the population lives as internally displaced persons. This has serious consequences - especially for the most vulnerable groups who are often girls and women. During the visit, I met girls who told heartbreaking experiences about rape, nuisances after circumcision, attempts to get married off, to become mothers while still being a child, and to have to fight to maintain schooling.

The positive thing was that the girls received help at the UNICEF-supported Gisèle Kambou Center, which I visited together with Minister for Development Aid Flemming Møller Mortensen. The center can not reach everyone, but helps as many girls as possible - among other things, get an education and access to reproductive health services.
Denmark has a strong voice in the world when it comes to girls' and women's conditions and rights. These are efforts I am proud to support. Thanks to the girls for standing up and telling their stories. I would like to use my platform to bring them forward and create awareness of the need to help where we can.

Happy International Human Rights Day to all!

- H.K.H. The Crown Princess.

"On a sunny summer day, Her Royal Highness the Crown Princess as president of the WWF World Wide Fund for Nature invited Secretary General of the WWF World Wide Fund for Nature Bo Øksnebjerg on a walk among wild flowers, weeds and fallen trees in the private garden attached to the Crown Prince Couple's residence at Fredensborg Castle"

I'm sure that's a problem in many countries.

The population and diversity of insects in DK is dropping fast and a lot! Not least bees and similar pollinating critters.
That is of course a problem for the general flora but also for agriculture, because so much of our agriculture is based on ecology. But the majority of our agriculture is intensive, with the use of lots of weedkillers.
But insects need a variety of flowers because not all flowers can be harvested for pollen at the same time. So a large field, devoid of weed or other forms of flowers in some numbers is basically a desert. A deserts the insects can't cross, because there are way too few pitstops in the form of weed or flowers to refuel on - so the the insects die. Including the useful ones.
And when they are gone, the birds who live on the insects vanish as well.

So over the previous years, various initiatives have been made in order to encourage the public as well as farmers to make life easier for insects in simply creating a small oasis here and there. That can be a pond in the middle of a cornfield, or not trimming the vegetation along the edges of roads more than absolutely necessary. Planting flowers and bushes along the edges of fields.
For people who have a garden it's encouraged to leave a corner of the garden unattended, a small wilderness as we see in the photos with Mary. And/or have a compost heap, which is a haven for beetles and birds who eat them.
In parks and woods more and more trees and tree-stumps are simply left to rot when they fall and are only removed if they constitute a hazard to the public, because so many insects and birds live in rotting trees.
The problem with unattended undergrowth is of course wildfire, not least as we experience more droughts these years and in a reasonably densely populated country wildfires are not necessarily a desirable thing, even though nature actually benefits from fires. So it's a balance act.

We are in still in the early stages of this popular and nationwide flora-rewilding and so far the number of insects and as such birds have not yet begun to increase.

A couple of videos from today:

How sweet to commemorate 10 years of Mary being Patron:

Mary surprised by ballet girls
And then the Crown Princess got the sweetest surprise on stage.

It happened when talented ballet girls danced onto the stage one by one and presented 10 flowers as a symbol of Mary's patronage anniversary.

Mary just had to surrender when the last flowers were danced up on stage to her by the local ballet school's very youngest ballerinas.

the DRF should really take advantage of their YouTube channel and put these speeches on video there with English subtitles. It is not that hard to do and more people would see the speeches!
